  • Summary: The camera would be as advertised if it was not for the MPEG2 file fomat and they use and lack of software control over your files. Sure you can copy and rename the files off the SD card, but don't save them to your computer first using the supplied software, it uses some compression method to create one huge file from all your little ones. And they will be little, 10 minutes record time in high quality for $900.00 + cost of 512 MB SD card, please.

  • Summary: The camera works as advertised, but I couldn't find any software that could convert the .mod files to something useful. Even the software that comes with it fails to convert the files to a standard format. I have a new XP Pro desktop, and Windows Media Player, Roxio Video Wave Movie Creator, and Windows Movie Maker do not play the files, convert the files or burn the files. Neither does the software that comes with it.

Watch Out - Not close to prime time

  • Summary: While the Pansonic D-SNAP has the potential for usable video quality, you need to realize that it is going to take atleast an additional $799 card to make it functional. To reach a useful quality, the D-SNAP uses a high speed Panasonic version of the SD card, which is now available as a special version 32x SD card by other sources. Today, people try to get the best price for a 30 - 60 minute DV tape at $5.

  • Summary: Mi cuñado compró esta cámara hace unos meses, y ayer la estuve usando. Es pequeña, ligera como una pluma (190 gramos con la batería y la tarjeta de memoria incluidas) y hasta bonita. Pero malísima. Tiene varias cosas que dejan mucho que desean en una cámara de 1.130 euros. Una muy importante, es que no se pueden compartir los vídeos que uno graba, porque para que se puedan ver en un PC, tienes que tener el programa específico, y no es cosa de decirle a un amigo… Te mando...
  • Pros: pequeña y liviana
  • Cons: muy poco compatible, mala calidad de imagen
